The GraceQuoteSome hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it; But we hae meat, and we can eat, And sae let the Lord be thankit. Address To a Haggis Quote Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!Aboon them a' ye tak your place,Painch, tripe, or thairm:Weel are ye wordy o' a graceAs lang's my arm. The groaning trencher there ye fill,Your hurdies like a distant hill,Your pin wad help to mend a millIn time o' need,While thro' your pores the dews distilLike amber bead. His knife see rustic Labour dicht,An' cut you up wi' ready slicht,Trenching your gushing entrails bricht,Like ony ditch;And then, O what a glorious sicht,Warm-reekin, rich! Then, horn for horn, they stretch an' strive:Deil tak the hindmaist! on they drive,Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve,Are bent like drums;Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive,"Bethankit" hums. Is there that o're his French ragoutOr olio that wad staw a sow,Or fricassee wad mak her spewWi' perfect scunner,Looks down wi' sneering, scornfu' viewOn sic a dinner? Poor devil! see him ower his trash,As feckless as a wither'd rash,His spindle shank, a guid whip-lash,His nieve a nit;Thro' bloody flood or field to dash,O how unfit! But mark the Rustic, haggis fed,The trembling earth resounds his tread.Clap in his wallie nieve a blade,He'll mak it whistle;An' legs an' arms, an' heads will sned,Like taps o' thristle. Ye Pow'rs wha mak mankind your care,And dish them out their bill o' fare,Auld Scotland wants nae skinkin wareThat jaups in luggies;But, if ye wish her gratefu' prayer,Gie her a haggis!
